5. Yep. As I said on Thursday night, the Mitt bounce was over.

It was a bounce, it was small and short-lived. He got a free week of positive press. And, now it is over.

2. All but one the polls they list have Romney in the lead

So how does that give Obama a lead in the average?

But a Behavior Research Center poll has Obama up by 3 in AZ.

9. 'a Behavior Research Center poll has Obama up by 3 in AZ'

By 2 to be precise, but Carmona is up 4.

3. Biden started the momentum again and Obama needs to keep it going on Tuesday. I believe he will.

4. It's a real lead. Rmoney is a paper robot.

He will take the blame from the Tearacists' anger.

6. Irrelevant -- that average was from Thursday...

...and most of the polls they've included since then have Romney in the lead.

This one is just too good to be true.
